On Aggregation


I??e been thinking a lot about the power of aggregation on the Web??ow a bunch of stuff from lots of different companies is much more powerful than a standalone site featuring the best stuff from one company. This is, perhaps, why CBS?interactive honcho Quincy Smith told the Wall Street Journal that a more accurate address for CBS’ video site Innertube would be “cbs.com/nobodygoeshere.”

Anyway, Morgan Stanley just released some data that compares how various kinds of online jobs sites are faring. Bear in mind that Yahoo’s HotJobs recently inked a deal with a bajillion newspapers to, among other things, get access to their help-wanted ads. But check out how the average solo newspaper is doing relative to the aggregators:
